The Internationaler Bund (IB) has started a new cooperation partnership for the prevention of early school leaving with partners from Norway, Spain, Romania and Bulgaria in September 2023. The project is called 'Keep all learners in schools' – KALIS - and is funded by the European Union's Erasmus+ program. The project contributes in particular to the achievement of the 4th UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs): 'Quality Education'.

The project, which will run for three years, aims to develop innovative and holistic approaches to prevent early school leaving. The comprehensive project will involve parents and students, as well as school administrators and teachers, and any external persons such as social pedagogues or psychotherapists, and will provide all stakeholders with practical tools and materials to prevent early school leaving.

Among other things, the project consortium will develop a digital training program with practical learning materials for educational staff and a real-time alert system for potentially at-risk students. The latter will be used to better monitor students' development for all stakeholders, such as teachers, parents and the young people themselves.

Also being created is an educational game for young students on dropout prevention that is as true to life as possible. Finally, the project is also driving the development of a dropout prevention strategy for schools and a strategy report of the project for public policy makers.

The project is funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union. All products and resources created will be made available on a European learning platform.
